These are exciting times at SCSIM—the Southern California Chapter of the Society for Information Management (SCSIM). We are the premier, non-profit professional organization for Information Technology executives—and we are on the move. I invite you to learn more about us, our membership and our programs, and consider joining our community.

The key SCSIM differentiator is our motivation—we are run by our membership, for the benefit of our membership. Our volunteers create and deliver the same programs that we as IT executives seek and value. Networking, professional development and giving back are “baked into the cake”. They are integral, not ancillary.

Our flagship SCSIM Forums are held three times a year and offer a late afternoon of professional and network development. Our CIO Enclave dinners are offered year-round throughout Southern California and offer a smaller, more personalized experience for our senior-most executives. And this year we are launching two new programs: Firesides, for today’s IT managers pursuing an executive management path; and a charity-focused Holiday Social event where we’ll have fun while helping others.

SCSIM membership is open to senior IT management practitioners and select leading technology academics and consultants. We strive to be a welcoming organization whether it’s your first meeting or your fiftieth. I encourage you to contact us, come to our meetings and join us.

Board Chairman
